 As much as I try I just cannot go a week without pizza. I even considered a cheese-less kale pizza to try and justify my cravings. This pizza has half the fat of a pizza from a local chain and is bursting with flavor. The mild garlic olives infused with the spice from the jalapenos and splash of sweet from the banana peppers. Such a winning combo. I added in a few boarshead pepperonis because they are my all time favorite.

What you need:

For the dough:

1 Cup of AP Flour

1/2 packet of active yeast

1/2 cup of warm water

1/2 tsp italian seasoning

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

1/4 tsp salt

For the toppings:

banana peppers

jalapenos

garlic marinated olives

boardshead pepperoni

mozzarella

pizza sauce of your choice

How to make it:

Preheat your oven to 375.

I used a bread machine and just dumped all the ingredients in the machine on the dough setting. This dough does not need more then 20 minutes of rise time. We are making a fairly thin crust.  If you do not have a bread machine just mix your sugar, water, and yeast together. Let sit for 2 minutes then add the rest of the ingredients.

Roll your dough out as thin as you prefer. I did about 1/2 an inch thick.

Top your pizza with the sauce, cheese, peppers, olives and pepperoni. Bake for 30 minutes or until the crust has a deep golden color and cheese is bubbling.
